One step closer to the commercialization of fuel cells
from Advanced Science News
One of the main challenges facing fuel-cell efficiency is the aggregation, sintering and loss of activity of metal-nanoparticle based electrocatalysts, during the electrochemical reaction process. In a recent paper published in
Particle & Particle Systems Characterization
, Wei Chen and co-authors at the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, demonstrate a creative way to solve the aggregation problem by encaging single PtPd nanocubes in a thin carbon shell.
